LID and CardMaker Fall Hop

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are ready for a super fun blog hop today!  Lil' Inker Designs is joining forces with CardMaker Magazine to bring you a super fun fall blog hop!  Hopefully, you are coming here from Jennie Harper's blog but if not, you can start at the beginning on the CardMaker Magazine Blog.  Not only are you going to get some amazing inspiration along the hop but you also have a chance to win a $35 Lil' Inker Designs gift certificate to one lucky commenter along the way!  So don't forget to let everyone know what you think of their creations along the way!


I created two fall card for this hop using the So Thankful Stamps, and the So Thankful Label Die.


I wanted to show off the versatility of these two awesome products by making an elegant card and a fun and playful card using the same stamps and die.  First up, my more classic card.


I started this card with a simple striped background.  I cut my So Thankful Label Die and punched a hole in the top to turn it into a tag.  I then stamped the frame, elegant sentiment, and classic thanksgiving designs from So Thankful Stamps on the tag to dress it up.  I stamped my sentiment first in yellow and then stamped over it but off set a bit in orange for a little pop.  I tied my tag to the card with twine and finished it all off with a gorgeous flower and some gold dots.  Simple clean and elegant.  Now for a little fun!


This card started with a bit of a wilder background choice.  It's a fun pattern on a blue black paper.  Super cool.  I used the So Thankful Label Die in the same way as the card above but chose the more silly/fun sentiment from So Thankful Stamps.  I stamped the fun accent designs around my tag in various colors for some whimsy.  I attached this tag to my card with some fun yellow and white twine with a pom pom that I made for a little extra smile.  I finished it all off with some enamel dots and hearts.

I hope you enjoyed my fun fall creations and I can't wait to go check out the rest of the hop.  From here, you'll be heading to Lisa's amazing blog.  I'm sure she's got some amazing stuff in store for you!  Have fun along the way and don't forget to comment for your chance to win!  See you along the hop.

Here are the products I showed off today:
